WWE Power Rankings Top 10 Superstars This Week: #247 - Back in America on the March to Stomping Grounds | Smark Out Moment
Welcome to another edition of POWER RANKINGS from Smark Out Moment! Each week, we will break down the current roster and examine who has gone up the WWE hierarchy and who has unfortunately taken a step down the ladder. Factoring in things such as wins and losses, suspensions, injuries, making a name for one's self, being humiliated, and more, who is at the top of the food chain and who needs to make up some ground next week?

Here is the key code for the rankings shorthand when referencing their position in relation to the previous week:

NR = Not included in last week's rankings at all
+ Green = the number of moves up in the rankings compared to last week
- Red = the number of moves down in the rankings compared to last week
Honorable Mentions = five superstars who just barely missed the cut

Power Ranking WWE wrestlers list roster

10. Mia Yim [-2]

Mia Yim drops down the rankings after a week of inactivity, but on her recent form the upcoming challenge posed to her by Aaliyah and Vanessa Borne shouldn't present any difficulty.

9. Oney Lorcan & Danny Burch [NR]

A team seldom featured on The Power Rankings, but fresh off their great performance at NXT Takeover XXV, Oney Lorcan & Danny Burch scored a big victory over The Undisputed Era's Kyle O'Reilly and Roderick Strong on Wednesday night.

8. Lars Sullivan [NR]

After his botched in-ring debut at Super Show Down, WWE came to their senses and gave Lars Sullivan a real squash match on Raw. The Freak destroyed and pinned all three members of The Lucha House Party in a matter of minutes to start building some much-needed momentum.

7. The Street Profits [-1]

Probably still off celebrating with their solo cups and mixing bowls, The Street Profits were absent from this week's NXT. But I'm sure they'll soon be back at Full Sail University to show off their shiny new belts.

6. Adam Cole [-1]

Again, while NXT was out on tour, new NXT Champion Adam Cole was nowhere to be seen, as the rest of The Undisputed Era handled this week's main event. Yet I don't imagine Cole will be able to hold himself back from gloating for too much longer.

5. The Revival [NR]

Let's face it - the Raw Tag Team Championships are arguably worth less than the 24/7 Championship at this moment in time. But, a title win is a title win, and The Revival claimed the belts for a second time on Monday by defeating Curt Hawkins & Zack Ryder and The Usos in a Triple Threat.

4. Becky Lynch [-1]

The Man is being protected, but the losses in her column are racking up on TV. In the build-up to a lukewarm rematch with Lacey Evans at Stomping Grounds, Becky Lynch teamed with Bayley in a losing effort to Evans and Alexa Bliss on Raw.

3. Bayley [+1]

A mixed bag for the SmackDown Women's Champion this week. As just noted, Bayley did take the loss to Lacey Evans and Alexa Bliss on Raw. But back to her own stomping ground of SmackDown, Bayley dispatched of Nikki Cross while her next challenger Bliss sulked on from ringside.

2. Seth Rollins [No Change]

With Brock Lesnar no longer announcing his cash-in dates, Seth Rollins is free to focus on his upcoming challenger Baron Corbin. Before Stomping Grounds, the Universal Champion had to contend with a crooked referee and interference in his main event match with Kevin Owens, which Rollins lost by disqualification.

1. The New Day [No Change]

The power of positivity and the refusal to lose. The New Day is back at full strength and still riding on the wave of Kofi Kingston's WWE Championship victory, as the trio defeated the team of Dolph Ziggler, Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn in SmackDown's main event.


Kushida - The former IWGP Junior Heavyweight Champion maintained his unbeaten start on NXT, defeating Drew Gulak in a submission match on Wednesday.

Fire & Desire - After Carmella was distracted by Fire & Desire in last week's number one contender's match, their number games worked against her again, with Sonya Deville defeating her in singles action.

Alexa Bliss - While she witnessed her new BFF Nikki Cross lose on SmackDown to Bayley, Alexa Bliss did score a tag team victory over both Raw and SmackDown Women's Champions on Monday.

Chad Gable - Making an impressive albeit slightly botched start to life on 205 Live, Chad Gable defeated Jack Gallagher by count out in a strong showing by both.

The IIconics - Yes, it was against two jobbers, but we got to see The IIconics successfully defend their Women's Tag Team Championships for the first time in months, so why not mention them here?

Dropped from Last Week's Power Rankings

  • Brock Lesnar
  • Shayna Baszler
  • Mansoor


Bayley +1
Mia Yim -2
